Baton Rouge Woman Charged with Medicaid Fraud

A Baton Rouge woman has been charged with seven counts of Medicaid fraud for filing false claims, announced Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

Angela A. Taylor, 34, of 10845 Sullivan Road, Apt. B-1, was arrested by investigators from the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit on Thursday. The complaint was initially referred to investigators by the Legislative Auditor’s Office. Taylor was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

Taylor, a personal care attendant, is charged with submitting false timesheets to her employer claiming that she provided personal care services to a Medicaid patient at the patient’s home, while actually attending to other patients. This overlap resulted in the Medicaid program being falsely billed $7,315.

Personal care attendants are hired by Medicaid providers to care for physically handicapped or elderly Medicaid recipients. They provide caregiver services such as cooking, grooming, and bathing.

If convicted of Medicaid fraud, Taylor could face up to five years in prison and pay up to $20,000 in fines on each count.

To report suspected Medicaid fraud, please contact the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit at 1-888-799-6885.
